Shiro Ninja here! I finally finished my "Full Metal Alchemist-Brotherhood" background painting. This final portion with the water and fountain is not exactly how I wanted it, but I'm going to call this assignment done. (Hey, I'm still learning and it's not going to be perfect right off the bat!) There's still a lot to learn about painting and using Photoshop. One tool that I discovered and now want to use all the time is called, "Gaussian Blur." That's what gives the water that soft, sexy glow. Now I just want to give everything that Martha Stewart glow!
Thank you Don for offering great painting advice and expertise! More assignments to come soon.
